Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said, “I am incredibly proud of the work my prosecutors, investigators, and support staff do every day to keep the people of Nassau County safe. Our partnerships with the Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies yield results and I’m so happy that others have recognized our efforts.
“We will continue to engage with our communities by providing support, education and access to services for anyone who needs them. We will continue to pursue MS-13 and other gangs, take on gun violence, fight domestic and elder abuse, tackle the opioid crisis, shut down scammers and prosecute public corruption. And all the while we will ensure there is justice and fairness for all.
